Read on to discover Savoir Flair’s favorite flirty fragrances that will turn up the romance factor faster than you can say, “Ooh la la.”
'Coco Mademoiselle Eau De Parfum Intense'
Remaining true to the oriental origins of the original ‘Coco Mademoiselle’, this sultry new scent is seductive and intense. “I wanted to remain close to the original formula, while giving it a whole new dimension,” explains Olivier Polge, in-house perfume creator at Chanel. “I wanted to increase the proportions of fractionated patchouli. Push it to the limit. Unleash its power on the skin without altering the freshness of the top notes.”
This Indonesian patchouli is blended with a heart of rose and jasmine, along with creamy tonka bean and Madagascan vanilla absolute, to make for one seriously addictive and passionate perfume.
'Poison Girl Unexpected'
Dior’s new floral fragrance is sure to capture your heart this Valentine’s Day. Inspired by the sweetness and sharpness of candy, it’s a delicious treat for your senses considering it’s where sweet fruits meet sharp spices and sensual, velvety flowers.
“For ‘Poison Girl Unexpected’, I wanted to transpose the strong and ambivalent sensation of an acid drop into a fragrance, so I played on the contrast of a fruity note that develops towards a sharp and sexy accord. A ginger note subtly heightened with a touch of salt seemed obvious as it is the perfect embodiment of the ‘expressive’ appeal of these sweets that explode in the mouth, and then make way for sweetness,” explains Dior Perfumer-Creator François Demachy. Just one spritz, and you’ll smell good enough to eat.

'Guilty Absolute Pour Femme'
“I imagined a woman going into her boyfriend’s bathroom, taking his fragrance, and making it her own,” says Alessandro Michele of his new scent creation. “I wanted a blackberry note that would make you dream upon smelling it. It’s magical, and it’s connected to nature as well as to emotion. There is romance in this perfume.”
Centered around succulent and juicy blackberries, this fragrance is also bursting with Bulgarian rose and goldenwood (a new natural extract from the Nootka Cypress tree), which adds a warmth woodiness to the fruity chypre. These hero notes are then blended with bergamot, patchouli, and ambergris to make for one moody and musky fragrance.
Inside this emerald-green bottle is where you’ll find one of Mugler’s most magical creations: ‘Aura’. Inspired by our most animalistic selves and the strong females who embody freedom and exploration, this is a scent guaranteed to bring out your inner wild child.
You’ll be transported to a lush green rainforest with just a whiff thanks to its botanical heart of orange blossom absolute and rhubarb leaf, which is perfectly complemented by its instinctive heart of tiger liana as well as an animal heart of bourbon vanilla absolute and wolfwood. It brings together woody notes and smoky notes – sweetness and juiciness – to constantly tantalize your senses and leave you wanting more.
